(Pocket-lint) – Google will bring 3D landscape functionality to Google Maps later this year.
The immersive view brings cities to life, with rich and detailed 3D graphics that you can move around and get a better sense of your surroundings.
It uses artificial intelligence and the large amount of Street View imagery from Google’s library to build a rich three-dimensional model of the area.
The new feature will first launch for select cities, including London, which was showcased at the Google I/O conference on Wednesday. You’ll be able to spot places before visiting them in a more intuitive way than Street View itself.

The Immersive View feature is expected to arrive in Google Maps on Android and iOS in the second half of 2022.
